Blades Of Malice is a band that has been around VA for awhile but never really done anything serious recording wise til now. We are in the finishing stages of releasing a 7 song E.P. Recorded at Forman Performance Studios in Arlington who's worked with local bands as well as international artists like Kam Lee to re-record old Massacre songs.
Possibly looking for a drummer for live gigs within an hour radius and maybe a future lead guitarist for recordings. We play a hybrid of thrash, death, and power-groove.
Influences are Testament, Exodus, Overkill, Sacred Reich, Kreator, Slayer, Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Napalm Death, Exhorder, and Pantera.
We've been doing this for awhile in our spare time as well as other musical projects. Some of the songs on our E.P. are 10 years old and are the first songs our guitarist wrote. Plenty of new killer guitar riffs coming.
Also seeking to do 2-3 way split recordings with other VA/MD/D.C. bands in the future.
To listen to a few complete songs and some samples of others that are still in the un-mastered stage check us out at
and our bandcamp

I'm not in VA, and I don't play drums, but those are some awesome influences dude. Will definitely check your band out.
